The Defence force has its doors open for a wide range of skill sets. Those willing to put their skills towards the service of the nation will always find a rank for themselves in the Defence force.
Some of the most interesting prospects in the Defence forces happen to be those of the Indian Army Officer, Ground Duty Officer, Air Traffic Police, Indian Defence Officer Military Officer and Research Officer.
Avenues like Military Journalism also open up if you pursue a course in journalism after succeeding at UPSC attempts. One can even look into being a Professor of Defence or Military Studies in renowned universities across the country.
Being a research associate or a research fellow is also a possibility as the role of research in defence is vital and it helps higher authorities in defence make more accurate decisions.
